I can't believe it took me this long to get around to reading this book. My daughter's dx was nearly two years ago, and I have read a TON of books since then- some have been helpful, but others just intensified the frenzied tailspin our lives seemed to be in. I wish, wish, wish that I had read this one FIRST.

The author's whole approach is calm, hopeful, balanced, thoughtful. She provides a lot of information on everything from testing and diagnosis, education, friends, treatments and therapies; to the internet, autism myths, gifts and talents, and getting through the tough times. Having two daughters on the spectrum, she focuses on the particular traits and needs of girls- which are quite different, in many cases, than those of boys.

Above all, she urges us to love, accept, and enjoy our daughters for who they are, without losing them behind the label or diagnosis, and to focus our concern on THEIR needs, not on the thoughts and opinions of others.

This is an absolute must-read if you are the parent, grandparent, or caregiver of a girl on the autism spectrum.

As a special education teacher in public schools, I found this book to be a must-read for anyone in the field of education. Although it's written for parents of girls with Autism, it was a real eye opener and gave me a whole new perspective on girls (and boys) with Autism. It verified some of which I already knew, and it taught me a ton more. I'm not sure I will ever sit in a CSE meeting again and not think about Eileen's experiences while fighting to devise an appropriate IEP for her girls! I will be passing this book on to the teachers I work with.

What can one say about a book that seems to be written just for you. I am the father of a 13 year old daughter that was just recently diagnosed with Aspergers. reading through this text there were so many instances that I could immediately relate to. It was truly remarkable. Currently my daughter is away at a therapeutic boarding school. It was there that she was diagnosed. She is set to return home to live with me in just a few weeks.

So much of what I just read in this book is about raising young children, but I am certain that the methods and theories remain the same through adolescence. I am excited for my daughter to return home, but I am also scared of what that re-entry will look like. We have a great deal of support services in place and she seems to be adjusting to the knowledge she is gaining regarding her diagnosis. Maybe that's the best part...she gets that she is different, and if we can celebrate that difference and show her it's an acceptable way to go through life, then I have no doubt that she will succeed.

I found this book through a link on facebook and I am so glad I went ahead and bought it. The author presents a lot of the information you find in other books about Austism Spectrum disorders but with a 'focus' on girls. Despite having already read quite a bit on the subject, I learned quite a bit. I have found the information helpful without being too 'preachy'. I don't feel as worried as I had been about my daughter (she is now 4 years old). I realize there are still many challenges for my daughter but feel more hopeful for her future. Great book!!

Oh how I loved this book! Since my daughter was diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome two years ago, I have met and talked to several other parents with "Aspy" kids. But every one of them has a son. Not a single daughter. So this book was so welcome to me. I bought it for myself for Mother's Day. As soon as I began reading it, I started to feel less alone in the world.

One of the agencies we have tried to work with, which is considered the premier agency on autism in our community, seemed to us to have very little understanding of girls on the spectrum. But Eileen Riley-Hall has solid information about the differences between boys and girls on the spectrum. My daughter, it turns out, is much like Ms. Hall's older daughter, who is also an "Aspy" (quiet, shy, very bright, very creative, funny, musically and artistically talented).

I laughed and cried many times reading the book. It has a wonderful blend of optimism and authenticity. I was so inspired by the accomplishments of Ms. Hall's daughters that came as a result of her advocacy and positivity. At the same time, I was deeply moved by her honesty regarding the losses involved with parenting kids with autism. I was disarmed by her forthrightness and humility and I was inspired by her hope and tenacity.

I purchased this for our ASD daughter to give to her father for father's day. He was very happy to get it and he's reading and studying it right now. He said it was the best gift that he received.

This is a sensitive and real life account of the day to day joys and struggles of a dedicated mom of two girls on the spectrum. The writing is intuitive and focused; the personal anecdotes are touching and heart-warming. Not only does Hall describe the challenges her girls have faced and overcome, but she provides an accessible blue print for other parents to follow. There are resources listed and much help provided all within the framework of a personal story. The writing has humor and compassion, and also packs a message for all parents to be grateful and positive, and to teach all children empathy and kindness .
I wish someone would have handed this book to me the day i got my daughter's diagnosis. I still found it helpful, insightful and positive. It is a book that lets you let out a breath.
